    ★★★

    I wasn't expecting to like this and I don't know it the fact that I went into this with really low expectations made me like it more.

    There are obviously problems with this, I didn't like the pro-military sentiments, and I definitely think that while they have chemistry, there's no way the main couple is going to last, their social and political views are opposite, they don't agree on anything, and they can't talk about those things without arguing.

    Still,…

    This movie has a humorous tone and is full of bright colors, but underneath that, you can feel the tension mounting throughout it. Because of that, I was expecting things to come to a head, but not in the way and with the magnitude they did. The ending was explosive, sadly realistic, and absolutely devastating. It's unfortunate that this movie is still relevant 30 years later.

    It took me a while to get into this film because I really disliked the characters at the beginning. But the cute little girl that stars in this made me keep watching and by the end of the movie I was screaming at my screen and ready to jump into the film to defend the 3 main characters.

    The second half of this film was so much better than the first. It even managed to include some discussion about the way "fist-world countries" intervene in other countries crisis with total disregard for the lives of the people of those countries and end up causing more harm.

    I re-watched this movie after around 15 years with my film club and the only parts that I remember- which were the different worlds people can create in the afterlife and the depiction of hell- were still there and they were interesting. But beyond that, this was a mess. I hated the way they discussed suicide and people who committed suicide, and the way there were supposed to be punished for eternity. Also, the fact that the kids of the main characters transformed themselves into people of color in the afterlife was a weird choice.
